Queen Of Love by Elalition Queen Of Love by Elalition
My rather lackluster imitation of :iconekfmikoyan:'s style.

I'll probably give this a round two when I'm not half dead at 2am.

Be sure to click download in the top right for full quality!

Many thanks to :iconalexiy777: for the vector.

i like this, but i feel that the text and image of chrysalis detract from its overall quality.

also jpg.

Unless you wanna go through the hassle of applying the background without Windows converting the png into a medium quality jpg, stick with this hq jpg.

Otherwise I'll send you the png over skype and link you to the article which shows you how.

Agreed though. The text & image spoil it a little, but I just wanted it pony related. :iconrarityshrugplz:

pony-influenced qualifies as pony-related. experiment a little, bro. try breaking boundaries.

as for windows converting it... what.

windows does that shit?

True, true.

And yup. Windows converts backgrounds not in a jpg or bmp format into a medium quality jpg. Because apparently that's useful or something.

If they have, I haven't seen it. The actual thing that tells it to do it is buried in the registry, so there's no one-time quick fix. You have to do some method each time you apply a new wallpaper.

couldn't you just change the registry to not do that?

i think that's how it works. is it not?

Yeah, except that each time you apply the wallpaper, the registry changes to accommodate that new wallpaper. If my memory's working, to apply a png background, you gotta go into the registry, and manually enter the file path for the png. If you just right-click and hit 'apply as background' it auto converts. Don't quote me exactly, but I think that's how it works.

In a few ways, I actually prefer this to their stuff. Despite really wanting to, I don't have any of MikoyaN's wallpapers, and the reason's because of the text that's on them. It's often so weirdly phrased and seems like it's trying to advertise or reference some sort of song or fanfic or something that I don't understand.

This one is straightforward English. Queen of Love. It's some sort of label for Chrysalis. It makes sense. It's not something that could-be-but-isn't-quite a quote from anyone or anything. And "MikoyaN" is usually displayed pretty blatantly, and I want cool wallpapers that show off awesome ponies and stuff from the show, not wallpapers that are all about the artist.

With this, you kept your own name simple and modest, in the corner. Your work doesn't go uncredited, but it doesn't get in the way of the actual picture. Good work.

I'm going to have to disagree with you. My most recent works rarely reference media, although they are inspired by the music I listen do depending on what emotion I want my walls to convey, plus a combination of snappy quotes that I somehow think up. Even then, the snappy quote part is something I've mostly detached from and rarely implement as of lately. With that said, I wouldn't say my wallpapers are all about me to any degree. Putting watermarks in places other then the corners of the wallpaper, which a good portion of designers do, is part of the uniqueness, because I feel that just putting one's logo in any old corner is cliché.

The logos I design just aren't made for sitting in corners. They just look forced. The same can be said about my own. They're made to display in more eye-catching areas of the wall due to their intricate nature and panoply of colours therein.
